#JCPartyPlanningGuide: (Surprise) Baby Shower!

Baby showers are such a beautiful event to celebrate. Not only is it a way to outwardly show your excitement for the mom-to-be’s coming baby, it’s also a time where close friends and family come together to give the soon-to-be-mommy gifts to celebrate this new journey in her life. Here are four ideas you can do to make the baby shower you’re throwing for your dear friend or family member a truly fun and memorable one!

1) Serve mocktails

Just because she’s pregnant doesn’t mean she can’t have a little fun! Mix up some signature mocktails everyone can enjoy–even the kids! Plus, these non-alcoholic drinks can serve as your drinkable “decor” for the party too!

2) Play games

A party isn’t a party without games, right? One idea would be the “Guess Who” game: have each guest bring a baby photo of them, compile everything, and make everyone guess who’s who (as a baby)! Read up on more baby shower games here!

 

3) Get crafty and creative

It’s time to take a break from games, get a little messy, and get everyone’s creativity flowing with a little DIY activity. It might be a cute idea to hand the guests fabric paints and plain white baby t-shirts or bibs for them decorate it. Not only is this fun, but it’s practical and meaningful too, since the mom-to-be can use the personalized shirts or bibs for when her baby is born!

 

4) Presents time!

Cap off the party by making your mommy-to-be feel all the love by sharing your heartfelt wishes or parenting advice for her and her coming baby. Don’t worry, this doesn’t have to be so formal—it can really be as casual as you want! This can also be the time you give her your gifts, and give a nice, sweet explanation as to the reason why you thought of giving her that present.

 

5) Great food and stylish decor

Plus, like with any other party, make sure you’ve got your A-game on for both the decor and the food. Choose your baby shower theme first, then let Josiah’s Catering work their styling magic and serve everyone with great-tasting dishes!
